In the Autumn of 1960, a fluke atmospheric weather condition allows a young teenager, Parry Tender, to receive a radio broadcast from New York City. Nestled in the Northern town of Goose Lake, Saskatchewan, Parry believes the contest the New York radio D.J. is running may be his ticket out of town, and away from a life to which he feels he never belonged. When Debbie Baxter, a young girl from California, arrives in the town by way of her father's position with the military, Parry soon discovers love, loss, and the magic of rock and roll. Written by
An enjoyable and entertaining teenage drama set in 1960 which doesn't reach any great heights but doesn't need to. Story of course revolves about the 45 rpm music disk and explores teenage love/lust without anything being blatantly sexual and teenage fascination for new wave music which hits the radio waves. By the sound of things, this film has not been big on release and publicity but is definitely worth seeing, depending on your age and status, others will like it better. didn't the guy who played George also play Sitting Bull in bury my Heart at Wounded Knee? Screenplay and script are fine, this is a fairly low budget film but don't let that put you off. Definitely one for DVD and not the cinema
